Global PC Shipments In Q3 2019 Experienced An 1.1% Growth

The international PC shipments during Q3 2019 experienced an increase of 1.1% with three main PC vendors including Dell, Lenovo, and HP Inc.

According to the latest report done by Gartner Inc., the global PC shipment grew 1.1% in the Q3 of this year. The total units of global shipment were 68 million, while the figure was 67 million at the same time last year. In the last few quarters, thanks to the decrease in component prices such as SSDs and DRAM, the profit margins of the top PC vendors have been on the rise.

Dell, HP Inc., along with Lenovo were the top three vendors. These three, along with Acer Group, gained a year-over-year increase in shipments this third quarter.

According to Gartner's Senior Principal Research Analyst, Mikako Kitagawa, the refresh cycle of Windows 10 continued to motivate the growth across regions, even though the influence magnitude varied depending on the conditions of local markets as well as the stage of the cycle.

For instance, in Japan, the PC shipments increased 55% in Q3 2019 thanks to the refresh cycle of the Windows 10 as well as an imminent change in sales tax. This could also push the growth of the total global PC market.

The shortage of the Intel CPU created more opportunities for other alternative CPU vendors like Qualcomm and AMDto reposition their processors in the market for PCs where Intel is the leader.

During this third quarter, the PC shipments were not impacted much by either the US-China trade war or the shortage of Intel CPU. Kitagawa added that there had been a decline in the shortage of the Intel CPU. Besides, the US tariffs on mobile PC produced by Chinese hadn't had much impact on the shipments of PCs since the time for tariffs’ potential increase had been delayed to this December.

Qualcomm has a partnership with Microsoft to promote the ‘always-connected PC,’ which will come with LTE capabilities. Even though this sector hasn’t taken off, almost every PC vendor has launched mobile PCs, which have built-in cellular antennas. Microsoft is also expected to introduce a mobile PC with LTA capabilities in the future.
